Stoner rock/metal all the way from Richmond, Virginia dominated the Civic hall in Wolverhampton (UK). It was a great night full of dirty riffage and beers that flowed way to easily. The night was caught on a Nikon D200, Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.
Fantastic show by the battle metal extraordinaire machine that is Turisas. Entertaining from the start, where else would you see an impish looking man playing the hand organ (no puns please) whilst around him Viking lay waist to the stage? All mayhem caught on a Nikon D200, Speedlight SB-600, Sigma 24-70mm 1:2.8 EX DG.
This is one of my favourite bands. Intense, thick, assaulting noise, Matt Pike is truly one of the best guitarists of all time! I caught the show on a Nikon D200, Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.
Russian Circles brought ambient stoner rock blasting out at 1000 decibels to the UK. It was deafening! Thankfully it was all caught on a Nikon D200, Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.

Toronto's Cancer Bats played an amazing headliner show in the stiflingly hot and sweaty Opera House. The air conditioner died and the Opera House became the Sauna House. Gross sweat caught on a Canon EOS 20D & Canon 17-85mm f4-5.6 USM IS.
A sweaty, engerised show by Valient Thorr with Valient himself jogging on the spot like a crazy man in his Rocky boots for the best part of the performance... great stuff! Running man moments captured using a Nikon D200, Speedlight SB-600 & Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.
Fu Manchu grooving the place up on a warm, Spring evening in the fine city of Wolverhampton. The night's events all shot with a Nikon D200, Speedlight SB-600 & Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.
Florida-based punkers, Against Me!, played a great opener for Mastodon. While there, we interviewed drummer Warren Oakes and he is one heck of a nice dude!
That night the heavens opened up and for but a few brief hours, the Gods of axe tantalized us common folk with a display of guitar wizardry unlike anything before seen. The G3 tour is a must-see event if you're at all into guitar! Pics shot with a Canon EOS 20D.
California's 30 Seconds to Mars, with sexy front man Jared Leto, were part of the energy packed line up for Rockstar Energy Drink festival Taste Of Chaos. We managed to attend and capture some action shots on a Canon EOS 20D, with 17-85mm USM IS.
